I've chosen to do this first as the way I've used it highlights the great versatility of the products sold by Dave's Games. From the same pub model, I've made a 28mm pub, a 15mm pub and a pair of semi-detached cottages; pictures of which follow ...
|'Front' view of pub|
To begin we have the 28mm Pub I've made. In these first couple of pics, unfortunately the roof is off centre - oops! Anyway, for this particular incarnation, I chose red brick walls, slate tiles, to use the extension, tiled base and stone edges - all of which are the 'layers' that VtG wrote about in his post. Other options include a thatched roof, gray brick walls, various 'tudor' options, grassed base, etc. (see 15mm pub below for some of these). I put the door in the end of the extension, and you can see 'Van Fampi' (28mm mini from eM4) here as scale
|Which door? too many choices ....|
|'Romeo, wherefore art thou?! ...'|
|'Hmmm ... needs a coat of paint at least!'|
|'Well it's better than nothing ... I guess ...'|
|'Needs carpet or vinyl - Something!!'|
And now to the cottages I 'bashed' from the Pub building. I wanted to have a small village that all looked to be the same style, so I've got 4 of these pairs assembled now, but as this is the only one with any interior detail, I've only taken pics of it. As you can see, I have cut the windows out of this and it was a real pain as I did it after I'd assembled it.
|'Let's hope this is better!!'|
|'Well ... nope - just as bad, not even any stairs!'|
|'Repetitive, unimaginative - needs work!'|
Next time I post on DG Models, I'll do the Chapel - honest!
As a teaser for my next post though, here is one of the spaceships I was painting over the long weekend ...
